1998 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV

Review

Basically, the Blazer is a good car. For the most part reliable. One bad alternator took out the battery and self destructed at about 48K miles over warrantee in time, I ate $800 repair while away from home. At 68K the water pump went, in a heart beat engine over heated and froze before we could get the car off the highway. Melt down to the tune of $3400. When somethings goes, it goes suddenly without warning and it is very expensive. Repairs have been avg about $600 yr. For a US car that might be typical, but 6 1/2 years ownership I think its bad after the warrantee ran out. Economically not an experiece I want to repeat.

Best Features

Seating is very good, the back seats lay down really flat for a big cargo deck. Sound system is good.

Worst Features

Build an engine to run for 100K mi w/o major break downs. The Japanese, Germans & Sweds do it, why not the US? At about 4 years ownership the plastic knobs on the radio and air vents began to crumber to dust really strange!
